Where readers and authors come together. . . and depart friends.

“No event offers the intimate access to authors as the NBCC.”

The 18th-Annual National Book Club Conference, July 31-August 2, 2020 at the Marriott Buckhead in Atlanta promises another unique, fulfilling weekend of Literary Bliss. With a lineup of Featured Authors replete with talent–famous and not-so famous–the NBCC ranks as the premier annual literary event spotlighting African-American authors and readers.

Our event places readers in an upscale, intimate environment with some of their favorite authors–and introduces attendees to new talent to add to their reading lists. The panel discussions on how to publish a book, the dynamics of the publishing industry and Black women’s health lend invaluable information that is lasting.

Since its inception, some of the most famous and talented authors have been a part of our weekend, including NBCC Literary Legend honoree Alice Walker, Terry McMillan, Iyanla Vanzant, Jenifer Lewis, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Susan L. Taylor,  Bryan Stevenson, Pearl Cleage, Hill Harper, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Roland S. Martin, Terrie Williams, Tyrese Gibson, Zane, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Judge Glenda Hatchette, Victoria Rowell and Stephen L. Carter, among many others, including the late E. Lynn Harris, Bebe Moore Campbell, Francis Ray and J. California Cooper.

If you are a reader who enjoys meeting authors and like-minded, fun people from all across the country, the NBCC is not to be missed. We limit registrations to promote intimacy, so please secure your position with a deposit now on our Registration page.
